An IndiGo flight from Jaipur to Bengaluru witnessed a distressing incident involving a female crew member and a passenger, leading to the arrest of the alleged perpetrator, Randhir Singh, by Bengaluru airport police. Singh’s unruly behavior included repeatedly holding the crew member’s hand despite warnings during the flight.
The security officer representing IndiGo highlighted that Singh, seated at 27D, made unwanted physical contact while the flight was airborne. Reports also indicated his attempt to consume alcohol and disruptive behavior towards fellow passengers.
The airline’s crew promptly informed the flight captain, labeling Singh an “unruly passenger,” which culminated in his arrest upon landing. The police registered a complaint under section 354A of the Indian Penal Code for sexual harassment and unwelcome behavior.
This incident underscores the importance of swift action against such behavior onboard flights, emphasizing passenger safety and the zero-tolerance policy for harassment. The apprehension of the accused reflects the commitment to ensuring a secure and respectful environment during air travel.
